    Okay guys, another catalytic converter theft question. This lady I worked with got her catalytic converter stolen today from work parking lot. We have a security guard. I have a 2010 tacoma pre runner.
    I have search tacomaworld to see if 2010 is a target. What i have seen is the 1st generation. Any one have ********? Is it worth it? i worked so hard to get my car and would hate having to pay $1000 to replace anything....

    Hopefully someone have some suggestions. I am too afraid to take the car out.

    And then the second best way to protect them would to be get some Long tube headers and a Y pipe and conveniently hide your cats in your garage under blankets out of the light.

    I suggest planting a few CLAYMORES underneath your Tacoma to catch the bastard!
